for mitt romney. even more specifically than the swing states just ohio and florida, double-digit deficit in florida. almost double-digit deficit in ohio. we can probably win -- there is a slight path to victory without winning ohio, there really isn't one i see without winning florida. and though mitt romney is making a play for ohio and is very committed to competing in those two states we're starting to hear rumblings from smart republicans who say maybe they would be better offon pulling from ohio and investing in florida. and then through some combination of these other swing states which you would almost have to run the table pull out a victory in the electoral college, but the math is tough. >> eliot: when you are down that much in swing states it is tough to get the tech tonic plates to move. what would you counsel him? >> i don't think it's about picking and choosing on the map. when you look at the senate races they are falling apart even more for republicans, which i think may be a leading indicator for romney. it doesn't make sense to me that ohio florida,
breaks and still close the deficit, that claim is mathematically impossible according to the tax policy center. romney's fuzzy math has put his surrogates in a bit of a tough spot. here is paul ryan trying to explain the impossible on fox us in yesterday. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away deductions. and we'll get to that. the first half lowering the tax rates does that cost $5 trillion -- >> no. >> you haven't given me the math. >> oh, it would take me too long to go through the math. >> come on i don't have the time to tell you how the math works. then he follows that awkward statement with another statement today. >> i like chris. i didn't want to get into all of any math of this because everybody would start changing the channel. >> jennifer: kind of funny. i isn't know candidates were worried about fox news ratings, and it wasn't just paul ryan having difficulty with this issue. governor bob mcdonald today was also at a loss to explain this math. >> where is the mat and is mitt romney g
the president not spending enough in outer space. this is mr. the deficit is coming to eat your grandchildren, but that's okay. because we should still be going to the moon to keep the chinese from being space station there. they are going to build a toy store there. and mitt romney is going to send all the work there. he is a remarkable guy, he is very capable of sending your job to china and making his money. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. love your headlines, scott brown will not be bullied by a girl from harvard. the only clips i saw was him bringing up her heritage over and over again. >> i think he's making a little bit of headway -- you know making her explain what she did for asbestos companies. it helped the asbestos workers, but you have to understand bankruptcy law to understand how it did that and you can't make a commercial out of that. the whole you make $350,000 to teach one course -- well he has been to law school. he knows how law schoolworks. >> stephanie: exactly. >> that line of attack is completely dissident from the line he sold to the country for three year
that adds up to trillions of dollars in deficit why? because the giant tax cut for the rich. that's why he doesn't want get into the math, and that's why romney will have a tough time at the debates. facts are not on their side. obama has boxed them in on so many issues, highways been right wing. they can't criticize him from the progressive so they have to go further right. >> it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would walk away from this kind of deal. >> this used to be a republican idea by the way the individual mandate. it's like they have amnesia. >> i will close guantanamo. >> i believe we need to look forward as opposeed to looking backwards. >> n.a.t.o. will maintain an enduring commitment. >> we then offer additional $650 billion in cuts to entitlement programs. >> this is a targeted focused effort at people who are on a list. >> there are a lot of republican who is are puzzled as to why it couldn't get done. >> i told them i'm prepared to do additional spending cuts and entitlement reform. >> cenk: where are you going to go? he said he's going to do with entitlement cuts.
to this country but for these military interventions wouldn't exist. and the deficit will continue to grow, and i suggest we'll have continue to have unsustainable debt and spending. >> cenk: let's go to the point of disagreement. i want to balance the budget, but i want to do it fairly, far more fairly than what president obama is suggesting, but i would increase taxes. i would agree with you in taking away the nonsense wars and, etc. how are you going to balance the budget by lowering taxes? come on, the math doesn't add up. >> cenk, the fair tax is revenue neutral. i'm not talking about raising taxes or lowering taxes but cutting spending. that's something that needs to start with medicaid, medicare and military spending. you got obama and romney debating who is going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending or we find ourselves with no healthcare for those over 65. that's the alternative. the monetary collapse--excuse me quickly. a monetary collapse when the dollars we have in our pocket don't buy a t

they need is a 20% across the board tax cut. and let's have less revenue and fix the deficit using hogwarts magic which is pretty much the paul ryan idea. that's what the widow's peak is about. i think it is part of his -- >> part of his dark hearts. >> john: they're slytherin all the way. i wouldn't trust them on a quidditch field. here is great audio that i'm thrilled about. i want to play all of this. todd akin, america's sweetheart. we talked with laura bassett about todd akin and about this guy should be written off forever about his comments about legitimate rape and how the woman's body has a way of shutting down pregnancies that were brought on by legitimate rape as opposed to the illegitimate kind that kind of makes me feel dirty. i feel better then is legitimate. don't you, peter? >> absolutely. >> john: todd akin managed to say something more offensive than that in my opinion. a lot of you will disagree. we've seen the rnc running to todd akin's defense after begging him to drop out. reince priebus -

without raising the deficit. while even conservative economists cannot make those numbers add up. martin feld stein of the national bureau for economic research finds romney's new tax rates would cost trillions of dollars. closing tax loopholes will not pay for that. he would need to get rid of middle class deductions which then effectively raises middle class rates. that study confirms a finding from the tax policy center earlier this year. another new study is finding women are making less than men in 97% of congressional districts. that comes from the national partnership for women and families and it means there are only 13 districts in this entire country where women and men are being paid equally. some of the nation's worst districts for women's pay come from louisiana and virginia where women are making just more than 60 cents for every dollar a man earns. more bill press coming up live after the break. stay with us. we have a big, big hour and the i.q. will go way up. how are you ever going to solve the proble

, training new teachers and workers bringing down student loans and reducing the deficit. that ad is airing in seven key states. over the next month and a half, we can expect both campaigns to target unlikely voters. that is because early voting is already underway and early voters tend to be educated, informed motivated. basically, they already know who they're voting for. what's left are the undecided and unlikely voters and we can expect both campaigns to work hard to get those people to the polls. meanwhile, florida is trying to keep people away. the state's officially restarting its voter purge with less than six weeks to go until election day. florida stopped its effort earlier this year when its purge list was obviously inaccurate. now the "miami herald" is reporting florida wants 198 people taken off its voter rolls but even the new list is not accurate. the herald is quoting one man who already sent in proof of citizenship but is still on the purge list and about 58% of those people are minorities. back wi
